The Defense Department's latest research idea: stop bleeding injuries by turning pigs into the semi-undead. If it works out, we humans could be the next ones to be zombified. The idea is to develop treatments that can extend a "golden period" when injured war fighters have the best chance of coming back from massive blood loss. Odds of survival plummet after an hour--during combat, that kind of quick evacuation, triage and treatment is often impossible.
